I’m in the same boat. I thought my Boyfriend or Best Friend was ready for the step, but he’s saying that “6 months top” is the right time. He’s a turd.

Anyway, I’m sorry you’re having that impatience, because I cannot wait and I have to know WHEN something will happen (I suck at surprises). I hope he does it soon. Why can’t he just call them and ask?

Haha girl you sound just like me! I know my FH is going to pop the quesiton soon, I just don’t know when!  I told him I wanted to wait till next summer, but he keeps telling me things like “I can’t wait to make you my wife” or “This is one summer you will always remember”.  Personally, it’s really hard for me.  Weddings are all I think about now and I am just SUPER excited to know that he is going to propose soon!  To answer your quesiton, I find that there is no real way to stop the anxiousiy.  My best solution would to be act as normal as you can in your relationship.  Things will happen in due time.  Also, do you really want him to propose just somewhere or somewhere that has meaning to you guys~he may have something up his sleeve! Just sit tight girly~it’s gonna happen soon enough! 🙂

@SAlady:  Yay! Another South African Bee! Welcome!

I am exactly in your waiting shoes… It’s absolutely torturous! He hasn’t gotten the ring yet but keeps on saying how he needs to go talk to my parents (but at least mine are like 15 mins away)

And I totally agree with the headstart – I think I know of every single wedding venue on my side of the world… Ugh…Embarassed

@SAlady:  Yeah I have known I was going to marry FH after 2 years, but we are only 19.  As we tell many people, we just got a head start on love.  Since we are 19, I told him I did not want to get married till I finished college (which is 3 more years), but I know engagement is on his and my minds!

I’m in this position as well! I know he has the ring, but I think it’ll be closer to the end of the year. It’s so hard knowing he has it, and knowing that is what is going to happen, but waiting months for it to come. It is part of the fun and everything I read tells us to enjoy this time together because once you get it, you never have this time back. 

So I guess we just wait, and enjoy the anticipation and the timing that we’ve entrusted to these awesome men! Can’t wait to hear the updates when it finally happens!!

I was there too but it was worth the wait! Hang in there ladies .. he will do it and it will be perfect.  Even though he may know you are going to say yes, its still nerve racking for the guys.  After my FI proposed I told him I thought he had the ring last week, and he did, he wanted to propose on my birthday so thats why I had to wait – and he also told me he took a lot of time talking to people about what to say, how to do it etc.  They just want it to be perfect so in the meantime enjoy the suspense as much as possible. Itll happen! Good luck !!
